    How Insulation Works
    You need insulation in your home to provide resistance to heat flow. The more heat flow resistance your insulation provides, the lower your heating and cooling costs.

    Heat flows naturally from a warmer to a cooler space. In the winter, this heat flow moves directly from all heated living spaces to adjacent unheated attics, garages, basements, and even to the outdoors. Heat flow can also move indirectly through interior ceilings, walls, and floors—wherever there is a difference in temperature. During the cooling season, heat flows from the outdoors to the interior of a house.

    To maintain comfort, the heat lost in the winter must be replaced by your heating system and the heat gained in the summer must be removed by your cooling system. Properly insulating your home will decrease this heat flow by providing an effective resistance to the flow of heat. An insulation's resistance to heat flow is measured or rated in terms of its thermal resistance or R-value.

    Adding Insulation to an Existing Home
    Unless your home was specially constructed for energy efficiency, you can usually reduce your energy bills by adding more insulation. Many older homes have less insulation than homes built today, but adding insulation to a newer home may also pay for itself within a few years.

    How much Insulation do I need?
    The Department of Energy recommends R-38 in the attic for most homes in the Los Angeles area. The thicker your insulation, the higher the R-value and comfort level, but there comes a point where additional material will not serve to provide additional performance….call us for a free consultation.

    No matter what kind of insulation you currently have in your attic, one quick way to determine if you need more is to look across the span of your attic. If your insulation is just level with or below your ceiling joists (i.e. you can easily see your joists), you should add more. It is important that the insulation be evenly distributed with no low spots, sometimes there is enough insulation in the middle of the attic and very little along the eaves. (Above, adding insulation over ceiling joists)

    Radiant Barrier Reflective Insulation

    Studies have shown that up to 93% of ceiling heat gain in summer months occurs from radiant heat transfers from attics heated by radiant energy from the sun.
       Roof shingles and decking absorb radiant heat generated by the sun and transfer this heat into attic spaces heating up existing insulation.  Once this existing insulation meets its saturation point, it then radiates this heat to all surfaces within the interior of the home (ceilings and walls). Radiant barrier reflective insulation products BLOCK almost ALL of this radiant heat.

    Radiant barrier reflective insulation can reduce attic temperatures by up to 30 degrees when installed to the underside of roof rafters.  Lowering attic temperatures provides a significant benefit by reducing air conditioning loads and energy usage.  Attic foil insulation radiant barriers can also reduce heat transfer from attic to living spaces by up to 50%, extending the life of your air conditioner while increasing home comfort.

    Having both a radiant barrier & conventional attic insulation, is a perfect combination. Think of a radiant barrier as your defense in keeping the summer heat out of your attic and thus your home, while ceiling insulation keeps the cool air in your home.

    Cooler in the Summer AND Warmer in the Winter!!!!
    The attic is by far the most critical area of your home to have insulated. Properly insulating and air sealing your attic will help reduce your energy bills.

    Money in your pocket!

    Dollar-per-value, attic insulation is unbeatable. Typically paying for itself within one year, it is perhaps the best money you’ll ever spend on your home. It pays for itself and then continues to save you money. Not just an improvement….an investment!

    Wall Insulation

    Most homes built before 1972 do not have insulation in the walls. Properly insulated exterior walls in your house will not only increase comfort but also help you save on heating and cooling costs. For energy savings, you can add insulation to your walls in an existing house. Wall insulation also can help quiet out side noises such as traffic and airport noise.

    Floor Insulation
    Heat loss through an un-insulated floor over a vented crawl space can be significant. The trend for hardwood floors with out carpeting, makes under floor insulation almost mandatory. In addition to comfort, you can save many dollars in heating costs each year by insulating under floors on homes with raised foundations.

     

    Insulation On Flat Roofs
    Foam boards—rigid panels of insulation—can be used to insulate the roof . They provide good thermal resistance and often add structural strength to your home. Foam board insulation sheathing reduces heat conduction through structural elements, like wood and steel studs.
